JRA jockey Joe Fujii visited the Japanoz stable. Previously, when I returned to Japan, Joe guided me through the Ritto Training Center and various farms. This time, I had the opportunity to offer support during his visit. After watching races together in Sydney, we flew to Ballina. Initially, the plan was to attend the local race meeting, but unfortunately it was canceled due to rain. Despite this, we toured the stable, interacted with the staff and horses, and visited some of Joe’s old friends. Additionally, we had dinner with my team members from the stable—jockeys Nori Masuda, Billy Shimodaira and Nozi Tomizawa. We discussed a lot about Japanese and Australian horse racing.
